I Bought Some Stuff Today

4-march-2009-bogota-colom-007

A big stock-up, on various essentials. I’ve bought more than ten bags of various pulses, a similar amount of pasta, rice, lots of frozen goods. I shall not be hungry for a little while, anyway.

Also, I will be making cookies (of the American variety) later tonight.

Is there anything in life more satisfying than making homemade stock?

1 onion
2 carrots
2 celery sticks
1 chicken carcase
a pinch of salt
a few peppercorns
2-3 pints water
whatever herbs are to hand

You feel like a culinary God and you barely need to bother chopping anything.
